Comments: A dancer in Paris

If she shows up in The Colonial Harem, which we'll be reading this semester, but later, I'll let you know. (It sounds very related.)

I thought The Colonial Harem deals with erotic photos taken in the Middle East and shipped back to Europe. I doubt Ms. Badirkhan ever posed for such pictures -- she was something of an artiste, after all. I tried a Nexis search hoping I'd find an article on her, or an obit, but with no luck, regrettably.
